Applications are now open for the 2022 Cardinia Community Leadership Program.

The free program provides up to 22 participants with an opportunity to grow their leadership skills and networks, and learn from a host of guest speakers, local leaders, and program alumni.

“This program covers topics to help participants in building their capacity as leaders within their local neighbourhoods, groups or organisations,” said Cardinia Shire Mayor Councillor Jeff Springfield.

“I encourage all aspiring and emerging leaders within Cardinia Shire to apply for this incredible learning opportunity.”

The course runs from July to November and is designed to prepare participants for success in their community leadership roles.

This includes learning how to effectively contribute to decision-making processes, think creatively and logically about addressing community challenges, and how to strengthen relationships through valuing and respecting diversity and inclusion.

Places in the 2022 program are limited to 22 participants and to be eligible, applicants must be:

  • a Cardinia Shire Council resident
  • 18 years or over
  • already involved in the local community in some way
  • able to attend all program sessions.

Applications close at 5pm, Friday 3rd June. Applicants should review the information available on Council’s website to ensure they are eligible and able to commit to the program requirements.
